Visual proof that Luke, Han and Leia got it on in A New Hope. Amazingly, totally safe-for-work. (via sunnyskywalker)
Brooklooineghost wrote an excellent essay on compassion; Drew Karpyshyn addresses continuty errors in Path of Destruction.; Rogueish on politics in the GFFA; Vader of Bast throws down a rant about the Legacy comics; Lord Noctifer rambles on Skywalker courage; Jan Lomona wonders why only Palpatine noticed Luke’s compassion.
Luke Skywalker is #85 on list of the 101 most influential people who never lived, as compiled by three “rowdy philosophers” from Jersey. Also making the list: King Arthur (#3,) Prince Charming (#20,) Dracula (#33,) Buffy the Vampire Slayer (#44,) Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock (#50,) Batman (#60,) Nancy Drew (#62,) and Kermit the Frog (#67.) Long story short: It’s kind of a weird list, and I expect liquor (and possibly tobacco – check out #1) is somehow involved.
Monday, September 25 will be Mark Hamill‘s birthday, so in honor of everyone’s favorite farmboy turned jedi, this week’s featured filk is written as sung by Luke on the Bespin gantry. Father of Mine is one of my favorite Luke filks and introduced me to one of my now-favorite bands, Everclear. Find more filks from authors Yav and Trace in the Filk Archive.
Luke Skywalker: He’s like Jesus, in a way.
In the latest issue of Bantha Tracks, Union is topping the comic Top Ten list, with Tales of the Jedi trailing behind. Not being Dark Horse’s biggest fan (Tales! Tales! Damn my non-voting self!) I blame our very own Paula, who got quoted. Or maybe not. ;)
Not that Union is the worst thing DH has ever done or anything, but… well. Maybe it’s just my knee-jerk reaction to the series’ awful, awful covers. You can pander to the females without making it look like a romance novel folks – it’s okay.
That and more smushy stuff in the latest edition of Bantha Tracks.
When one thinks fashion and Star Wars, Luke Skywalker isn’t exactly the first person that comes to mend. But according to Tom Stubbs of The Sunday Times, ‘man gear’ is now in fashion, and Luke gets namechecked. Huh. (Via TFN.)
